We first enjoyed Zea at the Kenner location, then the Clearview. The quality has been consistent. Have chosen Zea for "girls' night out", special dates and a place for "just good food" after hard days when cooking at home was impossible. We anxiously waited for the Baton Rouge location to open and continue to enjoy dining there. Recently retired and Zea (Baton Rouge) is where my husband had my family retirement dinner in Jan 2017. Thanks for the good times, Zea.

Been a while since we went, it was one of the best places in BR to go. My wife despises bbq in general, but she found several things she liked when we went. When we try a new place we usually order 2-3 apps, and two entrees we can split, and we both loved everything.

While it is a little on the expensive side, you get a lot and it was all wonderful.

It is crowded and loud because it’s a great place, so not much they can do about that, be sure to book early cause this place fills up FAST!

Contrary to what is posted online, there is Not a gluten free menu. I was very disappointed in the food itself. And travelled a long way with many other options. The manager did come by and talk to us at length, but the meal was over by then.

We went for Easter Lunch. Started with the Mediterranean Hummus which came with thick Pita Bread cut into triangles. Was a large appetizer which I highly recommend along with the Pineapple Jalapeño Chicken with Roasted Corn Grits and Sweet Potatoes, our grands 8 & 9 both odered Chicken Strips. Service was good esp considering it was a holiday. We were seated as soon as we walked in - we had reservations. Sat us in a nice booth which we had plenty of room. All of our food was hot and brought in an appropriate amount of time. I read so much about the roasted corn grits and I was not disappointed. I highly recommend it as a side dish. Looking forward to going back soon.

This was our first visit and was not disappointed. We were checked on mulitple times along with the Manger. Everyone was very welcoming and took their job seriously to make sure we had a good meal and experience.

I love Zea. It's one of my favorite restaurants. I was looking forward to the evening there with my boyfriend. We were celebrating our Valentine's late due to work schedules. I was a bit disappointed because they didn't have what I wanted to eat because they had sold out, but all in all, we still enjoyed ourselves.

The reason I gave 4 stars instead of 5, was due to our waiter not bringing our ticket out soon after requested. We had another event to attend, and we were pushing it with time. Aside from that, another customer repeatedly rocked in the booth behind me and my seat rocked along with her. Other than that, great experience!

The food was very good but the white rice under cook. Add brown rice to your menu. I will return for the Red Beans and rice (Brown rice). Please add 3 to 4 sausage to your side order of Red Beans & Rice. The THAI RIB WAS OUTSTNADING!!! Love them.

Do you sale the THAI RIBS for lunch for takeout 3 or 4 bones for a good price? $5.00 oops Under $10.00?

Service was great, but the rotisserie steak was pretty small and fatty or 30 bucks. Could've gotten the same steak at waffle house for a lot less. Overall not a bad place, but quality for price might be tad high.

AMAZING time as ALWAYS! Zeas is and has ALWAYS been one of my favorites. LOVE the thai ribs and the corn grits. The only thing is the Pork. On Mondays i have NEVER had the Pork served nice and HOT. I mentioned that this second time. They assured me that it was....alas, it was STILL room temperature. The other thing, my friend was SOO excited about the Catfish, we server said we had to choose something else. DOWNER for her. :-( BUT because we love Zea's she made the best of it. BTW, what is this about catfish having "too many bones"?????
